Appreciation of George Lakey

George Lakey has served as the college’s Lang Visiting Professor of Issues for Social Change within the Peace and Conflict Studies Program for the past three years. Faculty, students, and staff gathered on Friday, May 1, 2009 to show their appreciation and sing Broadway show tunes in Parrish Parlor. We have been privileged to have such a dedicated and experienced colleague in Peace and Conflict Studies. George has brought much energy, expertise, and humanity to our lives, and we look forward to working with him in the future. We have learned so much! Thank you, George.


George Lakey leads students, faculty, and staff in, appropriately, “You’ve Got to be Carefully Taught.”
